Electrical Home Safety Inspection Services
Electrical safety inspections are a good idea – no matter if you just moved in your house or have lived there for years. Besides the initial inspection when you purchased your house, electrical inspections provide valuable information to prevent fire and shock hazards.
If you’ve never had an electrical inspection and your house is 40 years old or more, you’re adding a major appliance or renovating, call your local Benchmark Electrical Services professional. Your house electrical inspection from our licensed electricians will ensure your family’s safety and increase the value of your home if you need upgrades.
Benefits of Inspections
Older homes operate on outdated wiring and electrical code standards. With an electrical inspection, you’ll be able to find out if your wiring is outdated, hazardous or degraded and fix these issues before they cause major problems. In today’s society of advanced appliances and devices, having an updated electrical panel and dedicated circuits keeps your home running safely and efficiently.
During an electrical inspection, our electricians will check for:
- Labeled electrical panel breakers and correct amps
- Hazardous areas that could shock someone or start a fire
- Correct light bulb wattage
- Properly installed and functioning ceiling fans
- Updated GFCI outlets in the kitchen and bathroom
- Operating smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
- Updated outlets with ground wires
- Properly installed and functioning outdoor lighting and security systems
- Up-to-date electrical wiring throughout the home
- Exposed wiring
- Loose power connections
The largest cause of property damage is electrical problems, according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Knowing where your house stands with electrical wiring can prevent property damage and keep you safe. Even if you’re adding a new appliance to your home, it’s best to have an electrical inspection conducted.
If the new appliance overloads your system, you could experience frequent power surges and tripped breakers, which can ruin your appliance and others on the same circuit. Our electricians may recommend a dedicated circuit for your new appliance, an entire electrical panel upgrade to meet amp requirements or rewiring services to keep your home compatible with new technology.
